A funny story, extremely well told
Yes, due to the fine performance of the narrator, who has a seemingly infinitely flexible voice and brought every eccentric character vividly to life.
Yes, although i was forced to divide it up over several days.
Not much happens in this story! So don't purchase or expend a credit on it if you require a genuinely hair-raising, corpse-strewn, edge-of-your-seat experience. This book is for anglophiles who are lovers of language, gentle humor, and character-driven mysteries.
